M. Snestrup, unknown printmaker from Denmark

M. Snestrup 
(Unknown Danish printmaker) 

Almost 4(!) years after showing this Danish mermaid print in this Blog (here*) I received a second example of a woodblock print by the illusive M. Snestrup by Danish reader Jeanett this week. 

Maybe this will help to find and identify this unknown printmaker. And maybe also the location of this remote harbor with fishing ships. Sooner or later there will be some-one who knows. Snestrup, by the way, is (today) a suburb and part of greater Odense (127.000 inh.) on the Danish Island of Fyn. It may have been the name of  a small dwelling or a farmhouse even. Very few people in Denmark are using the family name Snestrup.    


  1. Clearly you are organized! It pays to keep good records. : )

    Lovely prints.

    1. Thank you Cheryl, they are lovely indeed, and you're right: searching requires organization. I'm confident it will pay and the printmaker will be revealed and known. Eventually. The internet after all is a very powerful instrument and a combining of forces.
